Life isn't about waiting for the rain to stop.

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Ouch! Wonder if the howling winds were a factor as they do sometimes rip across that section of the Waveney with enthusiasm.

Hopefully, everyone is ok and without injuries.

Blimey, that's what you call a list! Whilst pootling along our apparently benign rivers, it's easy to forget the effect winds and tides can have.

Glad all are safe.

It looks  like one of Alphacraft's, possibly Hurricane/mustang by the look of it

This is no surprise to me, we tried to get through Somerleyton 3 days ago and had to drive in circles trying to get the attention of bridge control. We were there for over half an hour, calling the number and beeping our horn. We eventually called Reedham control and the bridge opened almost straight after.

Thankfully we have an experienced skipper but it was not easy.

Glad everybody got off safely.

We came through the bridge on Sunday only to be almost forced up onto the bank ourselves by a well known recovery boat aiming straight at us, on the wrong side of the river. It took us swerving and bringing our boat to a stop only for the recovery boat to swerve at the very last minute and extending a feeble 'oh sorry' after they'd left us rather shaken.

We then sat and watched the large luxury cruisers Sunday afternoon racing up and down trying to create high wash but to no avail. This was under the supervision of the BA I hasten to add! We were told the boat has been there for several days and was blown up in the high winds earlier in the week.
